Babu Xavier

Born: 1960

Education/Training: Cholamandal Art Colony in Madras

Exhibitions: Solo exhibitions at Mumbai, Bangalore, Bhopal, Chennai, Cochin, New Delhi, Kolkata, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.


Now living in Trivandrum, Babu Xavier chooses to paint only at night, when his imagination is allowed to come to life. His paintings stimulate the sense with their awry shapes and vibrant colour palettes causing contradiction and confusion with a person’s mind. But Xavier says, “Not everyone will like nor understand my art work; they’re not meant to.” Most interestingly though, on every painting he chooses to add a subtle barcode, which according to him reflects the consumerist trends and contemporary lifestyle we have to live with, where markets now rule.
